A compelling start followed by a flat ending. Collins excels at writing believable characters whose internal life is a mismatch with other people’s perception of them. Like Katniss, Snow has his own motives but manages to control what others think of him.
This interesting dynamic coupled with an interesting plot makes for a high quality first two thirds of the book.
Unfortunately the last third feels rushed and the characters’ motivations no longer ring true.
Worth reading for die hard Hunger Games fans only.
